Anti-aircraft missile system Red Sky 2 SHORAD made Israel Military Industries is a modular system that integrates external sensors and portable anti-aircraft missile [left] [/ left] systems (MANPADS). The system provides passive clock monitoring, automatic notification about finding purpose and fulfillment impact on designated targets, optimizing decision-making during the shooting. Red Sky expands the capabilities of existing systems, MANPADS, limited to the current time, the ability of the human operator. So, for example, MANPADS Strela (SA-7) and the needle (SA-16/18) are capable of hitting targets up to 5 km, but usually they are used only at a distance of 1.5-2 km, when operator can surely find the target and manages to perform a pre-training. Red Sky provides detection and identification of targets for effective range missiles acts. The system is designed to integrate with different types of missiles, including the U.S. (Stinger) and Russian (Arrow, Eagle, SA-7, 14, 16, 18, etc.) and their copies made in almost all countries (Poland, China, etc.). The system allows the introduction of these missiles, and in adverse weather criteria and the criteria of limited visibility, for example, in the mountains or the criteria for urban development.
Using infrared Scanner (Infra-Red Scanner, IRS), Red Sky can automatically detect and track multiple targets, while a separate on-board infrared system Front view (FLIR), located on the launcher and tracking module, captures the selected target. The command module, and modules, control and communications are placed in a light mobile system. This space-saving system designed for use by one operator deployed by another 2 persons. The system can be transported by helicopters and light ground tf.
Infrared scanner developed by the Israeli company Controp, kitted out the latest infrared system front view Fox. This system uses two fields of view — wider field of view of the camera (wide field of view, WFOV), providing a continuous, passive day / night wide coverage, the ability to detect targets at a distance of 15 km. Infrared system frontal view provides the operator with real-time panoramic overview protected hemisphere. Individual images generated panoramic processed in real time allowing target detection and tracking. This information is displayed to the operator as the initial situational picture. Block command, control and communication is based on strong PC, process, and display the incoming video signal to automatically detect and destroy air targets. After selecting the target launcher automatically turns to her side where airborne infrared system front view captures the target in the wide field of view. The operator can use a narrow angle of view for target identification and precise measurement of the distance to the target with a laser range finder. These systems allow the operator to perfectly capture the target at maximum range missiles.
IMI has developed the Red Sky in response to the specific requirements of the customer, integrating proven in combat systems such as Stinger missiles or Strela-protected PCs and developed Controp Precision Technology infrared view of the front and tripods.
